The aircraft had faced detainment over suspected human trafficking, with four French judges initiating questioning earlier in the day. However, upon authorizing the plane’s departure, the judges opted to cancel hearings for the passengers, citing irregularities in the procedural aspects.

The destination of the plane remains uncertain, with potential routes to India, Nicaragua, or Dubai. Notably, the passengers, communicating in Hindi and Tamil, reportedly contacted their families. A source revealed that ten passengers have sought asylum.

The flight comprises 11 unaccompanied minors, and two passengers, in custody since Friday, had their detention extended for up to 2 days by French prosecutors.

India’s embassy in France confirmed its staff’s presence at the airport near Paris, ensuring the well-being of Indian nationals detained over suspected human trafficking.

Acknowledging the French authorities’ efforts over the Christmas holiday weekend, the embassy expressed gratitude for their commitment. Reports suggest the travel may have been orchestrated by the Indian passengers with the intention of reaching Central America, potentially as a precursor to attempting illegal entry into the United States or Canada.

This incident has drawn attention to the complexities surrounding international travel, legal proceedings, and concerns related to potential human trafficking activities.
